  1. Charlie Horse: 9:19 (85#, kipping)
    Felt better about my pull ups (some good chunks of reps), and focused on improving my squat form. Even released the bar for a lot of the reps to try and keep my weight back. Baby steps.

    • Extra @ HS:
      3 rounds for time of:
      – 10 OHS (I did 55#)
      – 50 Double Unders

      struggled on double unders and had to concentrate hard to keep OHS going.
      Also got to do some good videoing of bad dead lift form and yes I did correct and not just video them.

  2. Charlie Horse – 10:37, 95#, kpu

  3. I’ve got nothing for that photo… besides the person in the background with the hoddy sooo does not want their photo taken.

    Charlie Horse: 9:06 (115# unbroken) leg was crushed from skiing last night.

    Here is that blog that we were talking about in the 5:30am for all the non facebookers.

    • Thanks for sharing! Hilarious read!

    • I’m offended.
      Also, what’s “Facebook”?

    • this is great and feels familiar from another 47 year old!

    • Heather V, thanks for posting my blog! (Your site showed up in my blog analytics.) It blows my mind that so many people around the world are sharing this thing and talking about it during WODs and so on. Look for more CF content in the near future from me!

  10. Big Mike

    Charlie Horse: 14:42 (only first round was C2B-165#)
    Two days in a row….overdid it on FS. Broke each round into just 2 sets but had nothing in the tank today. When Rachel said 12 minutes I thought that would be plenty of time. Halfway through was just trying to make sure I didn’t get lapped by the entire second heat and end up with the 6:30 am folks breaking down my bar for me so they could warm up. I guess I should withdraw my ECC entry….

    Caption: “We must, we must, we must increase our bust, the bigger the better the tighter the sweater, the boys will depend on us”….name the movie without Googling it….my next door neighbor Laurie Gulliagmo saw it 35 times in 1978.

    I pumped that I challenged myself (for the first time in MONTHS) with the weight. Almost stripped it last minutes and wound up doing them all unbroken!

    All CTB but still can’t link them and 45 singles is a time kill!!

    Did step ups bc wanted to challenge myself on squats.

    Post party 100 sit ups/ 30 days. Butt hurts

    “My gym is different”…. After doing sit ups, I can pull my spandex down, and show my butt raspberries to friends and ask them how bad it is!? Do they do that at planet fitness or PURE BARRE?
